Add the Polk TSi100 to your system to enjoy open sound with wide staging and precise imaging. These speakers feature Polk's exclusive Dynamic Balance® drivers that undergo laser testing to find and eliminate resonance points, ensuring that everything you listen to sounds clean and accurate. The silk tweeter delivers sparkling highs, while a polycarbonate woofer churns out smooth mids and lows. The braced MDF cabinet fights resonance so the details in your music and movies shine through, even when you crank up the volume.

Just team these speakers with a Polk powered subwoofer for full-range sound. They also work great as surround speakers when used with Polk's larger TSi models. And the TSi100 looks good, too. The woodgrain vinyl finish and elegant piano black top plate complement just about any décor.

    Why choose bookshelf speakers?

    Bookshelf speakers may be small in size, but they can deliver surprisingly big sound. Some ultra-compact models even fit on a desktop. Most are right at home in tight spaces like shelves, so they're usually good choices for your home theater's rear channels. For the best performance, try placing bookshelf speakers on solid speaker stands to help the sound really "open up." If you want full bass impact, add a powered subwoofer and enjoy punchy sound that's as deeply satisfying as that of floor-standing speakers.

    My computer system

    Written By Jamoore35, Austin TX on Sunday, November 15, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I was looking around for quality computer speaker setup and couldn't find any that I really like for a reasonable price. I had a extra Sony receiver laying around and decided to put it to use with some good bookshelf speakers. These are highly rated and the brand name made it an easy choice. With the sale price it couldn't be beat. I now have a killer system for my desktop setup and it didn't break the bank.

    Pros: Clear, well built, mounting clip, bass,

    Cons: Large and heavy if you don't have the room, I did but others might not.

    Pros: Excellent clarity and voice. Just great for jazz, classical, and old school country.

    Excellent sale, customer service, and quick shipping. Sound is very good for the money. Would recommend to anyone looking to start an inexpensive yet quality stereo system.

    Polk Audio TSi100

    Written By Papa D, Fenton, MI on Monday, August 03, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Reviewed many entry level bookcase speakers and the Polk TSi100 speakers seemed to have good reviews and were within my price range. Sound is excellent from both CD and vinyl music sources. I picked this particular brand of speaker because of the 5 year warranty that Polk offers. Not sure if the customer service is up to par but the 5 year warranty seems to me confidence in the build quality of the product.

    Pros: Excellent sound quality for the price, great 5 year warranty. Well built speakers

    Cons: The instruction manual is a bit basic.

    I'm very happy with the sound from these poke audio bookshelf speakers. They have crystal clean highs and deep bass response. I was pleasantly surprised after hooking them up to my stereo. For the price and size, you can't get a better sounding speaker.

    The Mouse That Roared

    Written By James, Arizona on Saturday, January 31, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    These sound excellent with a NAD amp. We have a Polk sub but it is not required for normal listening. These Polk's fill a medium size living room and can play just about any type of music well. Using speaker stands to align the tweeters with our ears brings the music back alive during critical listening. A real bargain as well. Go Crutchfield.

    Pros: Great mid range and highs. Good bass for their size.

    Cons: Tweeters placed below the woofer. Just flip them over for a real treat.

    Very respectable sound from a small package. Especially in this price range. I paired these with a Sony STR-DH130 and they work great together! Seems like the more you crank them up, the better they sound. I may add a sub down the road but for now I'm definitely happy rocking out in my basement workshop!

    Pros: Tight, clean sound. Nice wall mounting brackets.

    Cons: None.

    Polk TSi 100 Speakers

    Written By Ken, Missouri on Monday, December 29, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I'm not an audiophile. I got these Polk TSi 100s on sale to replace the 10+ year-old JVC bookshelf speakers I was using for the stereo system in our den. WOW!! These are much better than the JVC's! My Mannheim Steamroller Christmas CDs sound great! These speakers make me want to sit and just listen; something I rarely do. I rate the bass as very good; amazing for bookshelf speakers. With the JVCs I used to have the treble boost turned up full. With the TSi 100s I have both bass and treble controls centered. Again, I'm not an audiophile, but I recommend these speakers to anyone who just wants good sound. And, I highly recommend Crutchfield. The staff are very knowledgeable and helpful, the pricing is good, they don't sell any junk, and, they've been doing business the same way for a long time, which says a lot.

    Pros: Great sound and they look good too.

    Cons: None.

    Great Speakers

    Written By Dan, Los Angeles, California on Wednesday, December 24, 2014

    I am very happy with these speakers. They fill my house with great sound whether watching tv or listening to music. For the price I paid, they are a great value. Crutchfield service was equally good. I ordered the speakers on a Sunday, they shipped out the next day and delivered on Wednesday which was one day ahead of schedule.

    Pros: Sound quality, value for the price

    Cons: None

    Great set of speakers

    Written By PeterS, Milwaukee on Saturday, December 20, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    These speakers are sound and look great especially for the price. In particular I recommend them for Jazz, Rock and smaller ensemble Classical. For symphonic music or higher volumes I suggest to add a subwoofer. I liked them so much that I ordered a second pair.

    Pros: Excellent for Jazz, Rock and smaller ensemble Classical at low to medium volume.

    Cons: None, within the limitations due to the speakers size.

    Written By Photobuff, ATL, GA on Monday, November 24, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This small speaker has great sound. I am using them as rear speakers in a 7.1 system and they work well. I am considering using them as remote speakers in my bedroom but have not run the speaker wire yet and returning to a 5.1 setup.

    Pros: Size, sound quality. A great value.

    Cons: They are not quite as good as B&W 686 S2's but they sound pretty close to me. Of course these Polks are only 20% of the B&W 686's price so they are a bargain.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I installed these myself in our basement that we just finished, along with Polk Audio RC80i in-celiing speakers, Polk Audio PSW111 subwoofer and a Polk Audio Center Channel 255c-RT connecting to a Yahama receiver. It sounds awesome!! If you are an audiophile, you can probably pick a few things apart, but for everyday use in a basement TV area it came together great.

    Pros: Perfect size for bookshelf. Great sound.

    Polk Audio TSi100

    Written By David, South Carolina on Monday, November 10, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I gave these speakers a five star rating because they were such an improvement over the ones replaced. I can not talk about the technical side of their performance only how they sound to me. I had been using the Energy Micro speakers for a couple of years. I had downsized because I wanted to get rid of the larger speakers I had used for several years. However, I found that listening to music on the Micros just was not satisfying and began to look for main speakers that would meet my music listening needs. A few weeks before purchasing the TSi100 pair, I bought a pair of RTI A3 which I absolutely loved. Then I found they overpowered the Energy Micro surrounds....enter the TSi100s. I was amazed at the difference they made in hearing all the "background" action sound when watching movies. Even my wife, who generally is not at all impressed by electronics noticed the difference. So for me they completely did the job. I am 100% satisfied. The Crutchfield team, as usual, was great. They truly make shopping at Crutchfield a pleasure.

    Pros: These speakers created a much greater sense of presence than the small micros I had been using.

    Cons: None

    Really nice sound for the price

    Written By sparksongs, Central Florida on Sunday, November 02, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    We needed relatively small bookshelf speakers for our new entertainment center, and the choice was between Boston Acoustics and these. Since we had Polk Audio home theatre speakers in our last house and the fact they cost less than the BAs, we decided on these. While primarily used for the L/R front channels of our home theatre system, they sound incredibly full and rich when switching the amp to stereo only - they can take a lot of volume and have a nice, punchy low end without any noticible distortion. Great price from Crutchfield as well. Very happy with this purchase.

    Pros: Excellent sound; compact size; look great in our entertainment center.

    Cons: None at this time.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I used the TSi100 speakers as surround. rear channel sound. They sound ok, a little weak but sound ok. They were on sale for 149.99 no shipping & handling fees. I would say they are a good pair of speakers for the money.

    Pros: good sound. small in size.they look good to.

    Cons: Don"t sound as good as I thought they would. But still sound good.

    Tremendous sound for the price

    Written By Hencini, Memphis, TN on Thursday, July 31, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I was looking for a set of bookshelf speakers to put on top of some 8' tall cabinets in our newly remodeled kitchen. Since they would hardly be in an optimal position for proper staging and acoustics, I just wanted something at a reasonable price that would have decent sound quality. These Polks were on sale and I have been pleased with their products in the past, so I figured I'd give them a shot. Shipping was lightning fast as I have come to expect from Crutchfield. Just a moment ago I took down the older (8 years?) pair of Bose 201Vs that I had in the kitchen temporarily and installed the Polks in their place. All I can say is WOW. The difference in clarity is simply stunning. They are warm, clear and retain their composure at any volume that I would play my music. Coming from the Bose, I will probably have to drop a little bit of both the high and low end off the equalizer, as the Polks are so much more crisp and clear at the top and move considerably more air at the bottom. If I had to lodge one complaint, it would be that they are just a tad muddy on the low end, but I think I can dial that out with the equalizer.

    Pros: Fabulous sound quality at a very affordable price

    Cons: Maybe a little muddy on the low end? Might need to play with the equalizer...

    They sound Beautiful

    give it a minute... and they seem to break-in quickly. After a few EQ adjustments they make Aretha on vinyl come to life! I don't know what anyone else is talking about, these little guys have Bass and aren't shy about it. I had to bring down the lows otherwise I might have some angry neighbors! They are perfect for my apartment! I am totally happy with my purchase! Thanks to all the other reviewers who sold me on this product!

    Pros: They look great, and they have a really big sound!

    I paired these speakers with the TEAC A-H01 connected to my Apple desktop and using JRiver to listen to music. The sound is clear with very good base. I know these speakers were not specifically created to be connected to a computer, but if you have the space and a good amp connected to your computer, they will give you great sound at a very reasonable price.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    These are great sounding speakers! I origionally had them hooked up to my old Sherwood reciever and the sound was almost flawless. I just purchased a Sony STRDN 1040 reciever and what a difference it made.

    These speakers have great sounding bass. when I turn up the volume they keep the sound clean and they honestly sound like larger speakers.

    these are great for a 2 channel set up, or as front speakers in a surround set up. I'm using a 250watt powered 12" sub and these honestly sound great with the sub off.

    Crutchfield got them to me quickly and I love them.

    Pros: great range of sound. punchy lows and crisp highs.

    I bought these in 2010 to use with my Onkyo tx nr 808 ..but ended up keeping them but never really used them withmy purchase also bought the polk tsi200s I ended up using the 200s with the onkyo so now that my onkyo is broken I started using the tsi200s with my yamaha as 500 I bought back in april of 2013 I could never get that system to sound good with the tsi 200s ..so last weekend I was chatting with Ann the advisor on what I should do to get more mid bass from them speakers well my amp is 85x2 she said they would sound best with more power ..So I got to thinking wonder what the tsi 100s would sound like with that yamaha I forgot to mention I was running 2 subs also with the tsi200s it sounded like low end bass no mid bass and highs , so what I am trying to say with all that hooked up it sounded just like somthing with them 200s was missing in the mid section anyways back to the tsi100s when I hooked them up to that yamaha I was in shock at the diffrence all I can say is wow ..the tsi 200s need the 150 watts thats why they sounded best with the onkyo cause it was 135x2 and the yamaha is 85x2 and the tsi100s are 100watts I never thought that could make a diffrence but Ann was right ..now with the yamaha running the tsi100s the sound is deep rich with the 2 subs room even sounds fuller anyone looking to get these give them close to the power of 100 watts you will see what I mean or the tsi200s give them close to the 150 watts they require you will be impressed

    Written By Chris L, Richmond, VA on Friday, December 27, 2013

    The reason I gave the speakers a full 5 star rating is the price point. At the sale price they can't be beat. If you're in the $250 range listen to all of the available brands as everyone's ear is tuned a bit different. I have these on wall mounts in a gym on a Onkyo TX-8020 amp and it fills the space well with enough headroom to double the volume with no distortion.

    Pros: Polk, Price and range of sound.

    Cons: None

    I just put together a new home theater system using TSi300's as the front speakers, TSi100's as the rear speakers, a TSi CS10 as the center speaker, a PSW125 sub, and a Sony STR-DN840 receiver. Everything sounds great so far. I have no complaints.

    Delightful and enjoyable speakers.

    What a wonderful surprise to actually get your money's worth. These speakers have enough range to give you good bass and fine high tones as well. They have a nice full sound and fill the room well. In addition, they look good and fit on my shelves beautifully. I am thoroughly satisfied.

    Pros: Good looks, good sound, good value. Who could ask for more?

    Cons: Non that I can see or hear.

    Great Sounding Speaker

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I bought a set of OWM3 Polk speakers to add to the existing OWM3's I had, well needless to say that my rears didn't quite sound right so I ordered the TSi100 speakers to replace the other 2 OWM3's. The TS-100 's are a little large and have to have a heavy duty mount they weigh 10lbs each but let me say after mounting them and using them they sound so much fuller and in 5.1 movies they carry the surround load very well and sound so great. I highly recommend them !!!

    Pros: Great sound for a bookshelf-surround speaker really under rated by some .

    Cons: Cons a little bulky to mount, regular mounts are not rated for a 10lb speaker. They weren't free

    Paired with RC80i rear ceiling mount speakers and the CS10i center. Anything from rock, to classical plays well and with clarity, with movies I can finally hear dialogue clearly...I do use a boston Accoustics powered subwoofer and that works the bass.

    Pros: Great price point not only for the speakers but when you match with the I series rears and center it's affordable..


    Written By Chaz, Upstate, NY on Saturday, November 02, 2013

    Absolutely thrilled with the pair of TSi100's!! I have had my eye on these for awhile. I had kept hinting to my wife that I thought we should move our tower speakers up to the loft now that our son is crawling and almost ready to walk. Saw the phenomenal price drop and before I could order them she had them delivered to her office and surprised me!! I Love un-boxing new goodies, & these were no let down. Shipped well, & safely. Even though I was aware of the dimensions, they are larger and heavier than I was expecting. In a good way though. They feel and look solid. The piano black top plate is very nice, and matches my Energy subwoofer and Sony LED TV perfectly. Paired with my Denon 5.1 receiver and older JBL surrounds, and an older center. The TSi100's brought new life to our home entertainment. Warm enveloping sound. Perfect for music, TV, and movies. They put my older towers to shame. Now I can't wait to order Polk's CS10 center channel in the near future to really balance it all out. Thanks again Crutchfield for a great website that I Love to browse, great service, and a great product. Thanks to Polk Audio as well, and of course to my wife. Happy Holidays. -Chaz

    Pros: Wonderful speakers all around.

    Cons: None

    have purchased my share of audio equipment over the years and take my time to shop around, never in a hurry looking for what I want or need to fill that purpose. Very pleased with my purchase of TSi100 bookshelf speakers at a reasonable price, the quality and performance is what I would expect. These were bought for a customer of mine from the old school where stereo equipment is a must and she couldn't be happier, several compliments from family and friends. Made me look good, delivery was perfect and will purchase any other needed items both professionally and personally from you in the future. Thanks

    Pros: small with big sound

    I haven't had the chance to push these speakers yet, but for watching TVs and testing out some music, the speakers sound great!

    Pros: Good price, sound is much better than the sound from the TV.

    Cons: Not really a con, but I wish the front cover didn't have the plastic Polk Audio tag. I turned these speakers sideways on a shelf, and it looks a little funny.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I purchased these for an upgrade from the Polk T15's after buying the Polk CS10 center from Crutchfield and hearing the much improved clarity and crisp highs I was missing. The TSI 100's are the matching bookshelf for the CS10 and I figured the upgrade would be a good improvement. The T15's were good, and a great budget bookshelf speaker for the price, but the TSI100's are a MAJOR improvement and a steal at the current pricing. SOOO much more detail and fullness. Crutchfield AGAIN delivered awesome service and fast delivery.

    Pros: Fantastic sound and an amazing deal at current pricing. This is WELL below the price these originally sold at. Great detailed highs and they still have a good full sound with decent bass. Great fit and finish.

    Cons: None

    These Polk Audio TSi100 speakers are awesome. Makes my system sound so great, they dont sound like a small speaker. Fills the whole room and works perfect with my CS 10 center channel and 10 sub. Polk audio is really good.

    Pros: good price, sound louder than they are. Room filling

    Cons: none

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    First, these things are pretty to look at. Now, that's not the important part of speakers, but they look amazing. Thankfully, they also sound amazing. Really great response from a bookshelf unit. I've tried them on a couple different amps that I have they are bright, clear, accurate and quite loud. Also, for their size they still pack quite a bass-punch. For serious movie watching or bass-heavy music listening you might want to pair them with subwoofer, but as part of my small office setup they are perfect. They are recommended as surround speakers - they seem a little large for this use in my opinion.

    Pros: great sound. beautiful enclosure.

    Cons: none for my desires

    Imagine this: Party in the house playing loud music. I have the tsi 300 tower speakers as main together with a psw111 sub, but in this case I put the tsi100 on top of the towers and unplug the towers, just to see the reaction of my friends when they listen to the music. Fist thing they said "wow those polk towers sound great, they are so clear and well balance they can handle some pretty good wattage" (we were playing stereo mode) and then I said I'm only playing the little bookshelf speakers on top, they had to go closer they will not believe me!! With just that said. It is obvious that the toweres perform the best but these a certainly a great l pair for any application even as main speakers. I use it for back surround together with tsi towers, tsi sorround, cs10 and psw111.

    Pros: Very well built, big sound, beautiful design! Great performance for its price range! MDF cabinet. Low distortion!

    Cons: Some people may be bother by the size (my wife is, I'm not :))

    These are rear surround speakers for my setup with tsi400's in the front. The first time my family watched a movie with the new speakers we all looked at each other with big eyes after an explosion in the movie that sounded like it came from behind us! Our old surround speakers never played lower frequency bass like these can. It blew us away! The sound is very clear and no distortion. For small speakers they sure handle lower frequencies well which makes the sound stage much more full. We hear more things in movies and music now than we ever did with our old speakers. They sound so well that when we listen to music we have now changed the setting to "all channel stereo" instead of "stereo" which used to only play the front speakers and the sub.

    Pros: Small speakers and HUGE sound!

    Cons: NONE!

    I made an excellent choice buying these type of speakers . These speakers alone are loud enough to hear through out the house and I've not yet installed the subwoofer .

    Excellent sound and stylish look. Fits in well with my other components. It was time to upgrade sound system. Last speakers were purchased from Crutchville 2005. I expect the same long life from this speaker.

    Polk Audio TSi 100 - High End Sound

    Written By Tom, Lexington, Virginia on Monday, July 08, 2013

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Yes, at this price per pair from Crutchfield, these little babies are priced in "budget speaker territory"- totally, no questions asked! However, the TSi's drivers ( in this case, a small woofer and tweeter used in this speaker) are the same ones used in the $600.00 pair of Polk TSi 400s, as well as the other TSi speaker models from Polk. The Polk TSI 400 floor standers are bigger and produce a more vividly dynamic sound stage, but the smaller Polk TSi 100s, in this review, sound incredibly clear and refined for their size. Clearly, they don't have the subterranean bass of a well engineered floor stander, but they do bass in a way that comes across as pretty deep with great presence. Also, bass in any speaker should sound clear and somewhat balanced out, with the bass, the midrange and the high range all equalized. Hence, you definitely don't want the bass in a speaker to sound muddy and vague, yet, the bass in these 100s sound so incredible and well controlled, it makes them more accurate than any other speaker in this price range. The bass in the TSi 100s is enough for most people's needs, and to me is truly amazing for a book shelf speaker design. All told, this is where Polk wins out, in that these speakers sound so good for there size, you almost don't need bigger speakers- that is how great they really sound. I currently have these Polk TSi 100s in a 2 channel audio setup. I am using the NAD C326BEE integrated amp to power them, as well as the cd NAD C546BEE!

    Pros: These bookshelf speakers are incredibly well engineered and built, sounding like the $400.00 to $500.00 bookshelf offerings, but the right amplification is key to the best sound from these Polks. I am referring to the sound NAD Marantz, Onkyo, Cambridge Audio produce, to name a few choices. With these brands you get a tremendous "bang for buck" performance/cost ratio. I would have gladly paid the TSi pair full price, but the retail price from Crutchfield is an absolute "steal" !!

    Cons: None!
